The benefits of weight loss surgery can be long lasting supporting you to make the change to a healthier future. Consultant Bariatric Surgeon Mr Ahmed Hamouda and Maria Duckworth, Surgical Care Practitioner discuss.
If you have a BMI above 30, and need help to lose weight, there are various options for treatment depending on how much weight you want to lose:
*Only for adults with type 2 diabetes, otherwise the lowest BMI is 35.
In our experience, most people who have weight reduction surgery have already tried some, or all, of the treatments available to them.
Bariatric surgery has been shown to have some remarkable results and long-lasting beneficial effects. It also has benefits other than weight loss, such as remission from type 2 diabetes or a reduced risk of hypertension, sleep apnoea and heart disease as well as some cancers. And since your mobility improves as a result of weight loss, it'll have a positive impact on your physical and mental wellbeing.
